Presented By Compagnie Barks


9 & 10 September | 2.30pm & 5.05pm | Canary Wharf

Duration: 10mins

What to Expect: Dance | Speech free


This intimate and meticulously choreographed duet takes place around a table and two chairs, which look as though they are about to fall over, in an image caught frozen in time. Two dancers hang on in this unstable world, creating a seamless fusion of contemporary dance and acrobalance.

Bastien Dausse creates in 2014 the company Barks, with the desire to play with gravity. He creates his first show in 2016 “Les idées grises” and starts to develop a proposal around gravity by imagining scenographies defying gravity. Following this first show, Bastien Dausse continues his research by developing the project “Moon / cabinet of lunar wonders”. The (dis)balance is at the heart of his work, he plays with gravity by combining acrobatic material with scenography, sculpture, science and other genres. He develops an aesthetic of plural circus, variable according to the desires and the projects, inspired by the world, the circus and sciences, in the manner of a great cabinet of living curiosity. By imagining multiple performances, he wishes to challenge the laws of physics and question our relationship to everyday life.
